Impaired AA Conversion, iLipid Oxidation

Acute Illness: Stress Response

hCytokines, Hormonal changes,

Altered Substrate Utilization


Energy expenditure

Energy Expenditure

  • Decreased physical activity, decreased insensible losses, and transient absence of growth during the acute illness may reduce energy expenditure

  • Pediatric patients may not exhibit significant hypermetabolism post-injury?

    Lipogenesis from Excess Glucose Metabolism

    Gluconeogenesis and Protein Catabolism was not effected

Indirect calorimetry and crrt

Indirect calorimetry AND CRRT

  • IC: measure resting energy expenditure.

  • Based on: Expired CO2 and O2 (O2 consumption + CO2 production).

    Potential problem with CRRT

May affect IC


IC may not be

No Growth occurs during Acute Illness

Focus : Prevent Malnutrition

Children at Risk:

High basal rate of metabolism

Limited reserves

Baseline poor nutrition


Uremia and acidosis

Altered renal Amino Acid metabolism, lipid metabolism,

Fluid and Solute Clearance,


hLosses for Renal Replacement Therapy

Protein turnover in renal disease

Protein Turnover in Renal Disease

UNA/ PCR in Acute Kidney Injury

  • Adult Studies:

  • Protein Catabolic Rate ~ 1.4 - 1.7 g/kg/d

    [Macias WL, et al. JPEN 1996;20:56-62]

    [Chima CS, et al. JASN 1993; 3:1516-1521]

    Pediatric Studies: Urea Nitrogen Appearance

    UNA ~ 185- 290mg/kg/d (PCR 1.1- 1.8 g/kg/d)

    [ Kuttnig M, et al. Child NephrolUrol 1991;11:74-78]

Nutrition and PCRRT

Can Nitrogen Balance be Achieved

in AKI patients on CRRT?

Conflicting Studies

Bellomo et al Ren Fail 1997

Protein Intake : Nitrogen Balance

1.2 g/kg/d AA -5.5 g N /d

2.5 g/kg/d AA -1.9 g N /d

Does increasing protein intake help

Does increasing protein intake help?

  • Scheinkestel et al.

    1. Nutrition, 2003

    In 11 critically ill adults on CRRT, protein intake 2.5 g/kg/day led to a) normal amino acid levels and b) positive nitrogen balance.

    2. Nutrition, 2003

    50 critically ill adults on CRRT: 1.5 vs 2.0 vs 2.5 g/kg/day.

    NB related to protein intake.

    NB related to hospital stay

    Protein intake 2.5 g/kg/d: improved survival!

Potential for losses during CRRT

Glutamine supplementation

Glutamine Supplementation

[Ziegler et al, Ann Intern Med 1992;116:821]

45 BMT patients with Parenteral Glutamine (L-Gln) Supplemention : 0.57g/kg/d Gln &2.07g/kg/d AA Intake

Improved Nitrogen Balance: -1.4g/d vs -4.2g/d

i Clinical infections: 3/24 vs 9/21

  • Hospital stay: 29 days vs 36 days

    [ Schloerb et al; JPEN 1993; 17:407-413]

  • Hospital stay: 26 days vs 32 days

  • Total Body Water: -1.2 L vs 2.2 L (Bioimpedance)

  • Lower Linoleic concentration

  • MCT rapidly cleared from plasma

  • Olive oil less prone to peroxidation

  • Fish oil beneficial anti-inflammatory
